    Hi all

    I had several DLC I was looking to buy based on the in game price. Linking off to steam they're all different. Can anyone shed any clarity? Only a couple of quid in this example but I have about 10-11 DLC I wanted to pick up where a couple of quid and a lot more is stopping me buying any

    Examples below

    I believe that the prices you see in the game are prices for the Dovetail store and not for the Steam store.
    Dovetail often do their own sales from their online store (there's one running now).
    When you purchase from the DTG store, you get a code for Steam.

    Dovetail often has discounts on a few bits and bobs but it's typical for them to also follow a Steam sale with an equivalent sale in its own store. Steam had the Midweek Madness sale the other day so...

    I’ll have to look on the dovetail store, this was through the game which when you went to purchase sent you to the steam store .
    That could be why then
